Larkhall Thistle’s next home game will be against local rivals Lesmahagow in the Central League First Division on Saturday, 2nd February. We were due to play Shettleston but their Scottish Cup replay takes priority so we will be on league duty instead of playing in the Central Cup.
This is a vital game for Thistle in the push for promotion and also to make up for the defeat in the corresponding fixture at the Gow in September. See match report of Lesmahagow v Larkhall Thistle
Most people with Jags interests would consider the 6-3 loss at their park to be the poorest performance of the season so far. It was a game that was riddled with individual errors and to be honest a bit of a shock result in light of the fact that we were top of the league at the time and had just beaten leaders Greenock 5-2 to do so.
St Anthony’s narrow 3-2 win against bottom club East Kilbride has seen them leapfrog us again into second place but Lesmahagow are no mugs themselves, sitting handily placed in fifth with games in hand.
It’s a 2:00pm kick off so come along and support the Jags in their promotion push. Admission is £4 for adults and £2 for concessions. Any visitors not sure where the park is can find directions here.
